Patiphan leaves X10 CRIT and returns to Overwatch

The news just came out, the Thai player Patiphan has just left X10 CRIT to return to his original game: Overwatch.

The player started his professional gaming career on Blizzard's FPS, when he was not over the age of majority. Considered one of the future starts of the SEA region, he was unfortunately unable to participate in the Overwatch League. The competitive circuit requires players to be at least 18 years old. 

So at the end of 2020, he retired on that game, and made his debut on Valorant in the process. In February 2021, he joined FULL SENSE and achieved a top 3-4 in Challengers 2 and 3 of Phase 1.

At the beginning of April, he left FULL SENSE and moved to X10 CRIT, with which he won several competitions and managed to qualify for the Reykjavik Masters where he made a top 7-8. Having accumulated enough points throughout the year, the players then qualified for the final event of the season, the Valorant Champions. The group stage went well for them, they finished in second place and advanced to the quarter-finals. After facing Gambit Esports, the Thai players were eliminated from the competition on a score of 2 to 1 in favour of the Berlin Masters champions.

After this loss, Patiphan posted a tweet stating that this was the last official match he would play, strongly hinting that he would not continue on Valorant. It's now safe and certain, the player is leaving the competitive scene of Riot Games' FPS and joining the ranks of the Los Angeles Gladiators on Overwatch.

We hope he will continue to shine and we wish him all the best for the future!
